Newbie question - portableapps menu shows no apps

Hi. It's worked a couple of times but now shows as blank, ie no apps shown when I open the menu. Any ideas?
Thanks.

OK got the apps back. The autorun.inf thread was useful but I think what worked was that I managed to retrace my steps and find where I'd gone wrong, as when I first installed Suite, it worked OK.

There is a very small amount of flexibility in naming the main parts of the suite. If you just leave things the way they install, it works okay. Once you move one thing relative to another, as you found, things can get iffy.
